Hi Gary and Fellow Tappers,

Recently my husband and I went to a friend's retirement party wherein my husband put together some great music from the 60s and 70s for all of us to dance to.  Towards the end of the party, another woman and I decided to spin each other.  We held hands and pivoted, pulling our heads back to gain momentum.  We spun faster and faster.

My inner child was having a blast and we were laughing like crazy when suddenly her shoe slipped off her foot.  She lost her balance and fell down, with me tumbling after her.  When I hit the thinly carpeted floor, I struck my left hip with great force.  Ouch!!!  That hurt like hell!  I felt pretty stupid and I was afraid that I might have broken my hip.  Slowly, I was able to turn myself over and get up on my hands and knees, then rose tentatively and stood.  I hobbled into the bathroom and behind the closed door in the stall I started to use EFT.  I tapped for the pain that I had in my hip and for the feelings that I didn't want to stay in my hip.  The level of intensity of the pain was a 7 or 8 on a scale of 0 to 10.

Even though I feel really stupid for spinning so fast and falling down on the hard floor…

Even though my left hip hurts like hell ... it is turning into a big yellow bruise

Even though someone my age shouldn't be doing something as dangerous as spinning really fast...

Even though it was incredibly fun until we hit the hard floor...

Even though people may have thought that I was crazy...

Even though I feel embarrassed for acting like a kid...

Even though I feel like an idiot...

Even though I feel grateful that I didn't break my hip...

Tapping for about ten minutes brought the level of intensity of the pain down to a 3 or 4 out of 10.  My husband drove us home after the party and I tapped again using some of the above setup phrases.  The next day I tapped some more, and also tapped for feeling stiff.

I didn't get even a bruise (I tend to bruise relatively easily). Further, I didn't feel any pain unless I touched the area on my left hip that I landed on, and then I only felt a tender spot.
